2 motorcyclists wanted after 13 shots fired in possible road rage incident on I-95: state police
PHILADELPHIA - Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a shooting they say may have started as road rage incident on I-95 in Philadelphia late Sunday night.
A 35-year-old man told police he was driving on I-95 near the Walt Whitman Bridge when he accidentally tapped the back of a white motorcycle.
The motorcyclist then drove up next to the vehicle, pulled a firearm from his waistband and fired 13 shots at the victim, according to officials.
He was struck twice, once in the arm and once on the side of the head.

The victim was able to exit the interstate and flag down a Philadelphia Police officer, who transported him to a local hospital in stable condition.
A 33-year-old woman was also in the vehicle at the time, but she didn't sustain any injuries.
Police say the suspect sped off with another motorcyclist driving a black and green bike.
Both north and southbound lanes from Exit 20 to 17 were shut down for about an hour starting at 9 p.m. All lanes have since re-opened.
This would be the latest of four road rage shootings on I-95 this month, including one earlier this month that sent another person to the hospital.
